Product Description MD) CL) AA) Nikon Cool Pix 8700 Digital Camera Product Description Boasting an impressive 8-megapixel resolution and 8x optical zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix 8700 is a great choice for professional and advanced amateur photographers. Compared with its predecessor--Nikon's Coolpix 5700--the Coolpix 8700 has a faster start-up time, faster data recording, shorter release time lag and a new AF-Assist illuminator for quick AF operation in low light. It also features a movie mode with audio, a lightweight magnesium alloy body, PictBridge compatibility, and much more. Optics and Resolution The ultra-high resolution Coolpix 8700 has a 2/3-inch-type CCD that captures up to 3264 x 2448 images for poster-size print enlargements. Other resolution modes include 3264 x 2176, 2592 x 1944, 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768, and 640 x 480. The 8x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens (f/2.8 - 4.2) offers a focal range of 8.9-71.2mm (equivalent to 35-280mm in 35mm format). It also has a 4x digital zoom. The lens incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration for sharp, clear images. Additionally, the Optical Low-Pass Filter is optimized, which helps the high-definition CCD image sensor get the best optical performance. See detailed views of the 8700's features: Front Back TopMovie Mode In addition to snapping brilliant still photos, the Coolpix 8700 can also capture video with audio. It offers four movie modes: TV movie (640 x 480 pixels; 30 fps) with audio, Small movie (320 x 240 pixels; 15 fps) with audio, sepia movie (320 x 240 pixels; 5 fps) with audio, and time-lapse movie (640 x 480 pixels; 30 fps). More Features The Coolpix 8700 offers Programmed Auto, Shutter-Priority Auto, Aperture-Priority Auto, and Manual, as well as Exposure Compensation for an exceptional degree of exposure control. Nikon's 256-segment Matrix Metering system enables optimal exposures in even the most challenging lighting conditions, while its Matrix Auto White Balance neutralizes color deviations created by ambient light sources. The convenient Best Shot Selector (BSS) function automatically selects the sharpest image from a series of consecutive shots--especially valuable during macro or telephoto shooting. The 5-shot buffer mode retains the last 5 shots when the shutter button is continually pressed and then released in order to capture unexpected or fleeting moments. The continuous shooting feature captures 2.5 (H) or 1.2 (L) frames per second. Alternatively, you can use the new Multi-shot mode to capture 16 consecutive frames in a single image. It's equipped with a large, vari-angle 1.8-inch LCD monitor for increased visibility--even during bright daylight and a high-resolution EVF (Electronic Viewfinder) that offers greater contrast and clearer images. Other features include: Continuous shooting of up to 5 full-size (3,264 x 2,448-pixel) pictures at 2.5 frames per second (fps) 12 Scene Modes: Portrait, Party/Indoor, Night portrait, Beach/Snow, Landscape, Sunset, Night landscape, Fireworks show, Close up, Copy, Back light, and Panorama assist RAW mode image recording Accessory shoe to accommodate attachment of external Nikon SB-series Speedlights Fast shutter speed of 1/4,000 seconds and maximum 10 minute long exposure mode (along with noise reduction mode for long-time exposures) Printing The camera's magnesium alloy body is rugged and lightweight. The Coolpix 8700 is PictBridge compatible, which enables you to transfer pictures from your digital camera to your printer, without a PC or image-editing software. All PictBridge devices share three basic features: camera-to-printer connecting, single-image printing, and uniform error messages (in case something goes wrong) Storage and Transfer Images and video are stored on CompactFlash memory cards (Type I/II), and the Coolpix 8700 is compatible with MicroDrives (no memory card is included with this package). Files can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means it can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software. Power and Size The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (EN-EL1, included, captures approximately 210 images). It can also be powered by the optional MB-E5700 battery pack (6 AA batteries). It measures 4.4 by 4.1 by 3.1 inches and weighs 17 ounces (excluding battery). What's in the Box This package includes the Coolpix 8700 digital camera, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (EN-EL1), battery charger (MH-53), lens cap, camera strap, USB and A/V cables, and CD-ROM with Nikon View editing software and drivers.

Nikon Coolpix 8700 8MP Digital Camera with 8x Optical Zoom (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

  • When i initially purchased my 8700 in 3/04 it was one of few consumer grade 8MPs available. I preferred it to other offerings because of its small form factor and light weight, however others seem to feel this lightweight contender is not a serious camera. I do lots of hiking and wanted something light and durable to travel with me from Patagonia peaks to Saharan sands. Unfortunately the saharan sands did the camera in. The multi-element zoom lens is not well sealed and easy to get blowing sand in the zoom mechanism. I have had a nightmare dealing with Nikon to get the camera repaired-$275 and been waiting 2.5 months and still no repaired camera.Few other peeves about the camera: The flash insists on popping up in low light even when disabled. Wish the time exposure bulb feature had a shutter lock and max exposure time is limited to 8s--I do lots of night photography. There is no direct way to attach filters without additional hood which then requires large and expenisive filters and still creeps into exposure area at wide angles. There are few accessories available and getting them from local Nikon resellers proved to be challenging. The battery life was dissapointing and required that I purchase 3 additional battery packs. Ergonomics and menu navigation could be much improved. I do primarily landscape photography and wish the camera was more biased towards wider angle lens.Given Nikon\'s slow turn around on the repair, I am now forced to buy another camera for upcoming trip. This time I am buying Olympus E-300 Digital SLR.
  • As a one time semi-pro photographer, I wanted to get into digital photography from a \"real\" standpoint. While there are many good camera brands, you just don\'t go wrong with Nikon. I wanted a camera that looked and felt like a real camera. This is not our first digital camera, I gave my girlfriend a nice Fuji Finepix for Christmas. For an accomplished long time 35mm guy it was strange looking at an LCD Screen to set up your shot. On the Nikon, push a button and the LCD information shows in the eyepiece viewfinder with a diopter adjustment like a true 35mm SLR. The LCD screen rotates and swivels so you can take shots and see them from armslength distance. Picture holding the camera above your head to get a shot and rotating the LCD so you can see and set up the shot. I wanted to be able to manually take photographs and still take \"point and shoot pix\". I am still reading the owners manual and learning many of the fine points of operation. So far I really like this camera, within 5 minutes out of the box, I was taking pictures, and the nice thing about digital is you don\'t have to keep the bad shots. I am confident that this is goinng to be a great camera for my needs
  • for a product manufactured almost ten years ago this camera still holds up in many respects.the availability of settings is impressive if not exactly easily accessible and the quality of pictures leave a bit to be desired compared to today\'s standards ... but at this point its a bargain and a high quality one at some degree I can\'t help but wonder if it\'s my own inexperience that hurts the quality of the pictures I get, for certain I can say that fiddling with the settings has greatly improved the results. (this is well documented issue, especially the low ISO noise)as far as processing the pictures I would give as little of it to the camera and instead touch-up what I can on my PC because every function adds seconds to the lag-time between shots and is something to be expected.
  • My original 8700 was rained on, dropped, battered, and bounced everywhere in my backpack. Yet it lived many years before it gave up. I loved that you didn\'t have to \"line in\" to deal with your chips, allowing me to carry extra chips while traveling and take thousands and thousands of photos. I also loved that the battery can be removed to charge, allowing me to carry multiple batteries on a trip. It also has excellent default and auto settings so that you don\'t have to read a manual when you\'re moving fast. So I decided to take advantage of the chips and batteries that I had and buy another -- I\'m not sorry.
  • I had high expectations for the Coolpix 8700 being a Nikon product. I have been very disappointed with this camera for thefollowing reasons: the owners manual is almost impossible tounderstand unless you are a rocket scientist.The viewfinder is very poor quality and most of the time i cannotsee clearly the subject i am trying to photograph.The time it takes to take a photograph is very slow and by the time the lens has opened and shut, the picture has changed. I took some side by side comparison photos with my little Kodak 3.1 mp Easyshare DX 4330 which is several years old and was much much less expensive than the Nikon Coolpix 8700, there was no discernable difference in the quality of the pictures!I find all the buttons on the Nikon confusing, and like another reviewer said, by the time you remember which one to use it is too late.This is my first Nikon camera, but i plan on selling it and buying another camera from the Kodak Easyshare line.
  • Didn\'t come with the booklet on how to use it
  • This camera is pretty awesome. If you are trying to capture moving objects though, you won\'t get much. It seems to take so long from the click to the actual picture taking, that you just end up with a blur.
  • I had a camera just like this one. It stopped after 8 years. The best thing about it is the Panoramic feature that lets you take as many single photos as you want to do a 360 photo. it also has a 5 shot BSS (Best Shot Selector) that selects the sharpest photo of the 5 shots that it takes and saves the best. It isa good replacement for the one that quit on me.
